    True Crime Thoughts

    Not to diminish in the least what happened to these two girls, but how can anyone seriously be surprised that a guy with numerous arrests and citations for violent behavior killed a couple of people? I mean, isn't a guy who once pointed a shotgun in the face of another person over a game system and who beat a stranger in the WalMart parking lot over some perceived slight that happened in the store precisely the sort of person you would expect to commit this type of crime?

    I had to pull double duty on summaries this week, pitching in for others who couldn't. See TAR here, Survivor here.

    Movie Thoughts

    Who else has seen a commercial for the new movie The Wild? (It might help if you are in regular association with kids or just like to watch Nick.) Who else can't hear Kiefer (who is the voice of the lion whose son is taken) say "We're getting my son back!" without thinking "Those zookeepers shouldn't be pissing off Jack Bauer." I hope there is a scene where the lion grabs someone by the neck and throws him/her against a wall. It won't be the same if there isn't one.
